Used micro-wave for all of the melting steps and that worked beautifully. I did drizzle semi-sweet chocolate over the top (after cutting)to increase the sweetness. Serve them at room temperature to obtain the best flavor. Family members enjoyed them a lot.

I made a batch and shared them with co-workers who raved about them. I felt it missed the mark on the sweetness factor. I even added an extra cup of marshmallows to the middle layer as what I had left didn't provide adequate coverage and would have been unsightly when the bars were cut. I think I might try incorporating some white chocolate next time for increased sweetness...maybe drizzling it on top or perhaps sprinkling white choc chips over the marshmallow layer before the peanut mixture. Definitely for peanut lovers!

This was not as sweet nor as salty as I had hoped. The peanuts on top pretty much dominate the flavors. The base is very gooey and it doesn't make make a pretty layered bar like the picture. But it was quick and simple to make, and if you are a peanut lover, this one is for you.
